Family and friends are shocked and saddened with the sudden passing of Diane Wand, of Penticton, BC, at the age of 87 years. She was predeceased by the love of her life just four days before and her heart was broken. She is also predeceased by her brothers Roy and Don.
Diane is survived by her children, Rod (Lisa), Pat (Mike), Richard (Adel), Robert (Janice) and Ralph (Cathy); eight grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Vi as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Diane met Ralph while in nurse's training at Essondale. She worked as a psychiatric nurse until 1961 and then at Eaton's for several years before returning to her nursing career, all the while raising her family. She made sure her family never went without as she had while growing up in an orphanage. Together with Ralph, they enjoyed cruises, snowbirding and traveling where they perfected the art of Happy-hours, then arranged many more to follow for family and friends.
Their urns will be interred at Ocean View Cemetery in Burnaby at a later date.
